Hsin Yeow’s thoughts: Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas
In June this year, Thomas dropped me an e-mail,
“Hi! My wife and I are looking for a live band who can help us entertain our guests and make our wedding a memorable event. We visited your website and found you cool!”
Several e-mails later, I was intrigued to learn that Thomas and Joanne had chosen to hold their wedding lunch inside an underground chamber called the Bugis Vault, instead of the main ballroom of Hotel InterContinental.
The brick walls and warm colours gave me a cosy feeling as I made my way down the flight of steps that led to the Vault. Indeed, the venue is suitable for an intimate gathering of friends and family.
To warm up the crowd, Thomas and Joanne asked Judy and Clarence to perform a few carols. Even though it was 2 days after Christmas, everyone was still feeling the spirit, and sang along with Judy.
Being adept at building rapport with the audience, Judy captured the guests’ attention with her stage presence and husky vocals. Clarence’s solid playing gave the songs a rhythmic, acoustic spin, and contributed to the joyous, buoyant mood. Exactly what Thomas and Joanne had in mind six months ago.
Congratulations Thomas and Joanne! Thank you so much for engaging us for our wedding!

Compliments from Thomas:
Hi Hsin Yeow,
